Indoor Spring Nature in New Jersey.

The bright green version of the Stink Bug is new to me this year. It is smaller than the brown stink bug, but looks different from some of the ones I found in an online search.

Indoor Winter Nature in New Jersey — Western Conifer Bug.

I originally thought these were Stink Bugs, which also try to come indoors once the temperatures drops outside. They have similar colors, but the Western Conifer Bug is more elongated. I do wonder if the Conifer Bug is the reason many of my pine trees died, and had to be removed. Image taken with a Fuji X-T2 camera and 60 mm f/2.4 macro lens (ISO 200, 60 mm, f/2.4, 1/60 sec) with the pop-up flash.
